Dream symbols - advert

Adverts in dreams can have many meanings - just like the word advert. But always remember the negative and positive sides of a symbols. An advert dream may occur when you are trying to promote your own ideas or job skills. Yet an advert dream may at the opposite - that you need or wish to promote yourself much more. All the advert means is that your mind is focusing on the theme of promoting yourself.

ADVERTS IN DREAMS:Understanding dreams is not so difficult. In practice dream symbols translate into certain words within the English language. For instance an "advertising billboard" dream may simply translate into an everyday word such as "boasting". In that way the advert was a symbol for him boasting (adverts make exaggerated claims). The dream maybe about his need to rely less on his image and have greater substance as a person.

In practice adverts have several symbolic meaning. Here is the full list. Your advert dream will probably capture one of these specific feelings.
- "self promotion" (An advertising dream can suggest that you have been trying to promote yourself. Perhaps you need more confidence and you should show people exactly what you can do. Perhaps you need to moderate your rhetoric and be less boastful about yourself.)
- "job hunting" (if you are looking for a job it can easily trigger an advert dream. You are trying to show yourself in the best light. You are "advertising" yourself to an employer.)
- "dating" (Dating websites allow people to paint a picture of themselves which is completely exaggerated. People on Facebook post pictures of themselves from 10 years ago making them look cooler and younger than they are. Are you dating or on dating websites. Its possible that your advert dream is linked to your own or others exaggerated claims of themselves. Are you wondering what your date will do when they actually meet you and your lies have been revealed? Are you very dubious of others claims? Adverts in dreams can deal with these types of issues)
- "an exciting trip/visit" (Adverts tell of something exciting that you should look forward too. Is there something that you are looking forward too? Are you thinking about a friends return? Are you looking froward to a visit?)
- "something which is about to happen" (What is coming up in the future which you are thinking about?)
- "boasting" (An advertising dream may link to someone (including yourself) who has made exaggerated claims. Has someone been boasting too much? Are you weary of someone's ridiculous and unbelievable claims?)
- "a good idea" (When we read an advert and it impacts on us we get an excitement and think to ourselves that this is a good idea or that sounds exciting. Did you get a similar feeling yesterday? Did someone have a really good idea?)

Its a fallacy that dreams capture unconscious thoughts - dreams represent thoughts that we are all too aware of. A typical dream would translate into the types of thoughts that we might write down in a diary or tell a best friend. Dreams represent your key thoughts which pinpoint the problems right now. Try to write down some quotes which capture your feelings right now and try to include the words and phrases above. For instance a dreamer who was looking for a job had a billboard dream. He knew he needed to advertise his own skills more - he had to be more forceful and show himself in the best light. His advertising billboard dream simply translated into his need to stand out from the rest. Dreams are written in the strange language of symbolism but their meanings are often very straightforward. This dreamer did not need to hear someone translate this dream or him. Its message had already been translated to his conscious mind - he did not need some psychoanalyst to decipher its meaning for him. Indeed what would be the point of an unconscious mind if its meaning had to be translated by a psychoanalyst.

Dreams can represent very sophisticated thoughts. For instance one dream in our database featured a Harry Potter advert. In real life the dreamer had just found out a friend who she knew from back home in Australia was soon to be in the UK. She was excited at this and was wanting to meet up with her. In this case the advert shows the excitement of the dreamer. We often associate adverts with some exciting up coming event - in this case the advert caught this exact feeling - "I am excited that she will soon be here". When you start to combine symbolic meanings it shows the true accuracy of dream symbolism. Harry Potter can symbolise moments of make believe fantasy. In this case the dreamer had an almost magical feeling - it captures this type of feeling - "I cannot believe it! My friend who lives so far away will soon be here and I can see here". You will find that dreams capture exact thought processes and linking together two dream symbols can reveal a dreams true meaning. In this case the Harry Potter and Advert symbols join together to capture this exact thought - "I am so excited at her visit. I cannot believe it - its almost make believe that a friend who lives so far away will be soon coming to live so close to me".
